First of all, please excuse this headline, dear reader. Grimes is much more than just Elon Musk’s girlfriend.

She’s a renowned musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, music video director and visual artist who gained a mass following long before she started dating the South African-born tech mogul.

But, many not invested in the music space would only have heard of her after she started dating Musk. The couple also made headlines for naming their baby X Æ A-Xii, or X for short.

Grimes released news today that she’s has created a project called AI Lullaby

The project, for now exclusively available to iOS and macOS users, is on offer for eight weeks only, according to its website. It will become available to Android users later.

What makes this programme more than just your average baby song is that it adapts to your environment.

“AI Lullaby is an endless soundscape that adapts in real-time to your location, weather and natural light exposure. This means that your sound experience is always unique and personalised to improve your sleep.”

Apparently, the programme is scientifically proven: “Utilising neuroscientific and psychoacoustic studies, this soundscape was created in partnership with the sleep science experts from SleepScore Labs. Learn more about the science behind Endel.”

And it’s not just for babies. Apparently AI Lullaby is based on Endel’s beloved Sleep soundscape, which has helped adults and children all over the world to manage their sleep patterns since 2018.

Hmm ... I may give this a go.
